    I gave it a go, but its not looking very good.  Tried paying somthing towards my first bill with it after using the app for a month, and after 2 weeks they still havent transfered the money. I just get emails saying their bank wants to charge them to transfer the money and now theyre opening a new business account to fix the problems. It just sounds suspicious now.

    I signed up eariler this year and have been using it but I haven't earned enough (£50 I think) to pay a bill yet. We'll see how true it is when the time comes but I do think it's too good to be true.

    You can pay as little as £1 towards your bill. My first transfer was £2.60 towards my phone bill, second one is pending but I was promised £1 for inconvenience will be added to the account tomorrow. I started to use Zipzero in mid-January.

    I have been using it for just over a month and every time I get a £1 I transfer it to my phone bill.  It has worked so far and money has come off my bill

    To be honest this ZipZero App is a load of !!!!!!. Doesn't accept high value receipts so as soon as I get to £5 I'm withdrawing it and deleting the App.

    Can I ask what you mean by high value. What sort of amount are you talking about.
    Starting Total in September 2019 = £38287.77
    Current Total = £25534.10

    It was a receipt for over £200 (Specsavers Opticians). It just kept failing and getting rejected when I uploaded it.

    I've withdrawn twice now (they have upped the withdrawal amount to £5 as of this week) and it has gone onto my gas bill just fine the first withdrawal was made as they had bank problems so took a bit longer but the second one took no time at all

    Is it a full receipt or just a card receipt as it states in the T&C that they wont accept just the card one
